This is a 27 shot panorama of the Crux & Carina region of the Milky Way above the Pinnacles Desert, about 2 hours north of Perth in Western Australia.

This was one of the first opportunities I had to go out with my new full frame camera, the Nikon d810a, a camera dedicated to astrophotography with an IR filter designed to capture significantly more light from h-alpha emission nebulae (deep red on the visible spectrum at 656 nm). It's my first full frame DSLR and when used with the same 50mm lens I used with my old crop sensor camera it allows me to shoot large panoramas much more quickly, so double bonus.

Prominent in this image is the pink, petal shaped Carina Nebula near the centre, just below that is Crux aka the Southern Cross and in the right corner is the Large Magellanic Cloud. You can see quite a bit of h-alpha emissions in the top left, not visible in any of my other shots from my old camera...so it does a good job.

This is a 29 shot panorama of the late season Milky Way setting over a wheat farm at Irishtown, about 1.5 hours east of Perth in Western Australia. The light pollution behind the tree is from the city of Perth to the west while you can also see some light pollution from the nearby town of Northam on the far left.

This is a 66 shot panorama of the Milky Way setting over Mogumber Nature Reserve, 1.5 hours north east of Perth in Western Australia. I had hoped for the lake to be a bit fuller than it was but unfortunately it was pretty dry. This was taken not long after the core had passed Zenith so it's pretty high in the sky, hence the exaggerated arch.

This is a 38 shot panorama of the Milky Way setting over Harvey Dam, about 1.5 hours south of Perth in Western Australia.

The outer reaches of this dam, where all the interesting dead trees are, has always been mostly dry in the three or four times I have visited here. This time though, with lots and lots of rain over the winter, it was full to the brim. So much so that I couldn't get anywhere close to any of the locations I had planned to visit this night. Being late in the season I only had a short window, most of which was wasted going from location to location only to find out they were all inaccessible. So I had to make do with this spot, not ideal but it turned out well in the end.
